Springsteen Mania

I've been trying to get Springsteen tickets now for the last two days! He'll be here in Toronto on May 7.

I've loved Springsteen and the E Street Band since I was 14 years old. Bruce is a master lyricist, and his band are musical geniuses. There's a whole big deal being made of the scam TicketMaster and TicketsNow are running, and hence my trouble in getting any tickets. Well, I could get tickets if I was willing to spend between $800 - $1200. Imagine! What a farce.

Needless to say, I'm heartbroken. I consider Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band one of the 7 Wonders of the World. And I will die trying to see him in concert. I've not tried before because I never thought I'd be able to get tickets, the one time that I do try, I REALLY can't get tickets. I'm so sad. I've been moping all day. I'll keep trying but I don't have much hope.

Just look at the man. At 59 and he's still so hot! I absolutely love everything about him. He just reaks "sexy". That superbowl performance was just sublime. I think I would just pee my pants if I actually got to see him live. He's got such a great stage presence, and his music and lyrics are fabulous, ahhh.... one day.

Got this photo off his website, Ahhhhh wish me luck....

Favorite Springsteen song: I could say Thunder Road, Born to Run, The River, Atlantic City, She's the One, Lost In the Flood, Back Streets, Racing In the Street, Pointblank or even Rosalita, but I really think it would have to be Mary Queen of Arkansas from Greetings From Asbury Park. It's so hard to just pick one, they're all my favorites!
